As we approach the giving time of the year, we’ll take a left turn here at Flea Market Funk. For the B Boy, DJ, Digger, Producer or emcee in your life, we give you Original Hip Hop Chocolates. Now you may dismiss this as just candy, but I assure you this company sees its product as much more. Their goal is to “inspire a catalyst for discussion on the evolution of art and culture in the world” and create a meditation for Hip Hop culture. Targeting Hip Hop heads as well as chocolate connoisseurs, these chocolates are a change from the normal Hershey bar or candy canes you get in your stocking. Bespoke candy? You know it. What a concept and we applaud the Left Coast company to be the first (and best) to do it. Taking the Hip Hop lifestyle to a different level by adding some original candy to the line up. They’re so popular out West, that the Gallery from the site is a who’s who of Hip Hop. All of course repping the unique chocolate. From Naughty by Nature to Z-Trip and everyone in between, the Hip Hop community can’t get enough of this. I can see Bill Murray a la Lost In Translation (ok Big Daddy Kane would work too) endorsing this: “For the sophisticated B Boy, try Original Hip Hop chocolates……”
You have many elements of Hip Hop in chocolate form to choose from: shell toe adidas, ghetto blaster, microphone, mixtape, MPC2000 (not sure if it’s a XL), brass knuckles, as well as a bunch of organic lollipops in flavors such as Chili Mango, Ginger and Taramindo. Not your typical chocolate, but chocolate for a Hip Hop generation. Don’t try this in your mom’s kitchen, do it under strict Hip Hop supervision. Shout out to Adrian Younge for putting us on to this.
